今天一大早，打开几乎所有的美国各大新闻或报纸网站，你都可以显著位置看到类似这样的醒目标题：China Passes Japan as Second-Largest Economy，当然，还有无数网民的comments。
在The New York Times上，有一个22岁年轻中国人的comments，我把它全文摘录：
I am a Chinese. I am 22 years and have been living in a city locates in the southwest of China for most of my life. When I was a teenager, not a single Chinese I knew owned a car. Neither my family or I ever dreamed of owning a private car. But 2 years ago, my parents who were in their 50s brought their first car, a Honda. Owning private cars is not unusual to Chinese anymore. Today some many Chinese have private cars that there is even an acute shortage of parking lot in my city. And just this morning, when I commuted to a nearby downtown area, I saw the four-lane road swarming with private cars during rush hours.
Unlike Americans who get their driver's licenses at an young age, Chinese get their driver's licenses at an older age. Because it is still unusual for Chinese parents to buy their teenage children cars. College students here normally don't own a car either. But this is going to change soon. Most of my friends in college are learning how to drive, even though they not yet own a car. It's because they are confident about the future. They know life will only get better.
It reminds me of something my mother once told me. Growing up in Mao's year, my mother said that the best things that a household back then could ever dream of were " a bicycle, a watch, a sewing machine and a radio".
GO, CHINA! GO!
